About Stephanie


Hi there! That’s me, Stephanie Greenwell – lover of a forgiving Lord, my handsome husband, my six (yes, SIX!) beautiful children, sushi, and a great pair of boots.

I’m a photographer in Southeast Missouri, commonly referred to as “The Bootheel.” My areas of expertise are newborns, babies, children, family, and seniors, and I strive to create the best possible images from your session.

Always being the funny person in a group(I have stories for days because of having six children), I tend to be boisterous, full of laughter, and just plain making the most of this life, a perfect combination to work with your little ones and families. You will have a great time hanging out with me and my camera.

I started Stephanie Greenwell Photography in 2008, with the hope of just creating beautiful images for a few clients, and now it has grown beyond anything I ever imagined, all while making a lot of new friends. I have wonderful, enthusiastic clients that make me love my career in photography even more. My clients have turned into friends, keeping updated on their lives, their growing families, and I’ve helped so many preserve the memories of their families as the years pass. My work has also been featured on many photography websites, on the walls of local businesses, and publications (having my work in National Geographic as been a major highlight of my career!).

I’m always thrilled to work with my clients. Seeing a child’s belly laugh in a field, a newborn being curled into the perfect, snuggled pose, a senior that is nearing the end of their high school career and becoming an adult. And the beauty that comes from seeing two people in love, hugging and holding onto the little ones they’ve created.

These things, these beautiful moments in life – they make me love what I do. I look forward to capturing what matters most in your life, because as the saying goes, “The days go slow, but the years go fast.” I look forward to helping you preserve your most precious memories, in the most beautiful way.

Amanda O'Brien - My name is Amanda O’Brien, I am such a fan of your work! recently got engaged and it is such a shame to stumble upon your page and see that you unfortunately don’t do weddings 🙁 But I thought I would pick your brain like you suggested with any recommendations you may have. We are on a budget, but photography is something I think is worth spending money on but want to get the most out of it of course. I love the natural lighting elements you have and the actual natural life-like photographs without the over editing you see with a lot of other photographers. We will be getting married in New Hamburg, MO which is a little north of you but would appreciate any recommendations you have in mind! Thank you so much for your time!
